St Bride's, Fleet Street is a warm and welcoming Christian community, and one of the most famous and most fascinating historic churches in Central London. 

St Bride's is known worldwide as the Journalists' Church, offering a spiritual home to all who work in the media. However, our ministry extends to everyone who lives and works within our parish, and to the thousands of visitors who come to us every year. Our beautiful Wren church provides a place of peace and a spiritual haven in the heart of the city for all who come. With one of the best professional choirs in the country, we are also well known for the outstanding quality of our music and of the worship we offer.

A place of Christian worship for 1500 years, we continue to proclaim the love of God here today. Whether journalist, tourist, City resident or worker, you will always be made very welcome.Alison Joyce

Since Easter, St Bride's has contained more scaffolding than we would have believed possible as part of a major maintenance project to restore the interior of the church.

The wonderful news is that the work is almost complete and the transformation is astounding!  Hirst Conservation have done a magnificent job in restoring the interior to its dazzling former glory on schedule. Our renewed thanks to all who contributed so generously to the cost of the renovation.

The church is fully open for business; Space for Silence occurs weekdays at 5pm and Tours and Recitals resume in August.

Join us for a special celebratory 'Bright and Beautiful' service on Sunday 25th September at 11:00am. Further Information →

'On this rock I will build....' (Matthew 16: 18)

We all need a foundation for our lives, something that anchors us and gives us a sense of purpose and direction. Our faith can provide us with that. Peter's confession of faith in Christ was the rock on which the church was built. When our lives are tested, when we face the storms that happen, we need a firm foundation of faith. Christ is our security, now and for all eternity.

Lord God, Thank you for the firm foundation of faith laid by Peter and the other apostles. Help me to stand firm on that foundation now and always. Amen.
